December is a magical month. Togetherness, giving, comforting lights and delicious food. Holidays bring traveling, cooler weather, less sunlight and more social obligations that might throw off your usual patterns.
The ability to be fully present & enjoy the holidays without guilt or stress is crucial for your mental state. By taking care of yourself throughout the busy season, you allow yourself to soak up the holiday cheer more than ever. Consider these gentle suggestions for self-care through the holidays:
Remember to be kind with yourself this season. The holidays are busy. Enjoy your traditions, families and understand that nutritious eating, enjoyable movement and decreasing overall stress are all forms of self-care. Enjoy holiday fun foods and cozy nights without guilt. But try to avoid the dangerous “all or nothing” mentality around food choices and exercise. Be intentional and present about where you put your energy this season.
